The ones, who have suffered tremendously, due to the economical crisis, are both the middle class who are barely hanging by a thread to their jobs, and the middle class who have lost their jobs.
I believe that the very rich and very poor have not suffered one iota throughout this terrible recession.
Those who have never worked a day in their lives, and have been on welfare for years are the ones who have never had to worry about health insurance, college, a roof over their heads, or food to eat. The more children they have, the more they get. Everything they get is free, or very close to free.
When I go to the grocery store, I can spot IMMEDIATELY the ones on food stamps, because it is obvious by the contents of their grocery carts.
My question is, why on earth are they permitted to buy sodas, candies, and sweet bakery items? And why are they given so much to buy groceries? And why does free lunch exist?
I came from what is considered a large family (four brothers and myself), and my parents couldn’t afford paying for our school lunches, and although my parents were barely making it financially, we didn’t qualify for free lunch. Mom would place in a paper sack peanut butter, tuna, or baloney sandwiches, an apple. For breakfast, Mom would make scrambled eggs by adding a couple of crumpled up bread into it. We ate lots of spaghetti, chili beans, and whatever else was an inexpensive meal. She’d make us muffins or cupcakes as a treat.
I’m not sure, but I believe they also get free cell phones, maybe even free internet access.
It makes me sick to my stomach to see so much abuse. Something is VERY wrong with this system!
As for my political views, they are both democrat and republican.
